The Medics by MauserGirl The Medics by MauserGirl
Medics deserve a lot more credit than they get.

I used a photo as reference for this and also used the actual photo as the background in this piece, even though you can't really tell. I used the cutout and blur tools on the background. A lot of the colors in the drawing are based on those in the actual photo. As far as the art goes, I departed from my usual "clean" lines because I wanted to give the picture kind of a hectic feeling. I'm not sure if that comes across but it turned out okay.

(And before anyone says this should be political or current events - I didn't put it there for a reason.)

And, clearly, I'm an idiot who just posted the wrong link. Here's the right one - [link]

Thank you very much.

There's actually an updated version of this that I recently finished, which is here if you'd like to compare. Personally, I like the new version better than the old version.

great and moving piece. I'm impressed, it feels almost alive.
I expecially dig the eyes on the patient and the overall feeling and expressions you gave each one of them.
Amazing job

LeniR, I would hug you if I could.

My Dad was a navy Hospital Corpsman, Deployed on the USS Debuque (Or was it Debuke?) and with the 2nd Marines, 3rd battalion I believe it was. (he is asleep at the moment. Working at the hospital and all)

He was, without a doubt a hero. He did more things IN the line of duty daily then quite a few riflemen wouldn't do in four years out of the line of duty. He may not have gotten a medal, but he being out of the navy for Twenty one years... STILL gets thanked for being there as a Corpsman by marines. If he met them or not.

I'd just like to thankyou for making this peice of artwork here. It brings people like my father to the eyes of regular people. =)
